Tony Blair To Withdraw Troops From Iraq

LONDON, UK -- British Prime Minister Tony Blair said today that he would soon begin the withdrawal of all British troops from Iraq. Blair said he was "simply overwhelmed by the logic of the situation". The following is a quote from Tony Blair's address...

It is now obvious to me that the terrorists are killing innocent civilians here in England only because innocent civilians are being killed in Iraq. If we can stop the killing of innocent civilians in Iraq, then the killing of innocent civilians here in the UK will also stop.

The innocent civilians in Iraq are being killed by al-Qaeda because the UK has troops in Iraq. The UK is keeping troops in Iraq because it is trying to protect the innocent Iraqis from being killed by al-Qaeda madmen like Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

The answer to this dilemma should now be clear for all to see. If we simply pull our troops out of Iraq, and allow al-Qaeda to kill the innocent Iraqis in peace, free of UK interference, then al-Qaeda will leave us alone here in Britain... for at least a few days, if not weeks. The only downside I can see in this scenario is that innocent civilians in Iraq will still be killed.

Osama Bin Laden could not be reached for comment.

OK,,,it's like this Tony Blair would like to bring pieces of the Uk troops home in order to maintain
a modicum of peace police in London.In other words,Blair wants a peace of the pie.

What kind of pie?

It's common knowledge the British can't cook!

I quote:

"Whatever excuse or justification these people use, I do not believe we should give one inch to them, not in this country and the way we live our lives here; not in Iraq; not in Afghanistan; not in our support for two states, Israel and Palestine; not in our support for the alliances we choose, including with America."

What's not to understand?!

Kajun,
I think the Brits go for Shepherd's Pie. Maybe Tony Blair is looking for the Shepherd's Peace Pie (Christian allusion intended).

Camo,
I was referring of course to the jumbled satire that I wrote, not what Blair actually said... but then, you knew that.

They also eat "Bubble and Squeak",and "Toad in The Hole". Both of which sound as if they could Mire your Quag.

Hi there.

Just wanted to say we must Support the American Troops.


Anyway, found a good support song and web-site on the internet to support the American Troops
I liked it and thought that it is a good song. It is important now that all our troops know that we stand by them no matter what.

Check it when you can.
